Christmas Prep final.

Christmas has not reeeeeaally started.  The tree is up.  And lit, despite my scissor / secateur effort.

Large parcels are arriving and being unpacked. Placed under said tree.  All our parcels are sent, and cards.

Empty parcels are siezed on and enjoyed.

We have had two Christmas get togethers, one lunch, one dinner and still one to come.

Every evening on go the Christmas Carols, songs, from the sublime choirs to the ridiculous. Slade.....

But for me, this year has a tinge of sadness.  

A very dear friend is away to pastures new.

So I am thinking more of the New Year with all its challenges and changes to come.

Good job there will still be 

Happy Christmas.

n.b. new header depicts the Northern Lights.  A lot of activity out there, keep watching.

The header pic is beautiful. All our preparations are very nearly done - just a birthday cake to do. The Christmas songs are on the CD player and all is set.
Have a lovely Christmas.
zz - sorry - xx

Beautiful new header of yours of the Northern Lights. It is sad to lose a friend, and yet you have good celebrations, gift sharing and the message of the season to cheer you. Merry Christmas.

A beautiful header - something I would dearly love to see. I love the fascination cats have for all things 'box' :)

Welcome Hawthorn Spellweaver. The cat is still using the box! Collecting a proper cat bed, much to the disgust of the Dawn Patroller!

What a beautiful header! Very sorry about your friend. I hope you can feel that she is with you in spirit, and I hope you can still enjoy Christmas. The cats are obviously enjoying it! Merry Christmas, Jill. xox

So sorry I seem to have sent out a confusing message.
Thanks for all the lovely comments.
